The failed 2016 parliamentary candidate on the ticket of the Progress People's Party (PPP) in the Obuasi East Constituency in  the Ashanti Region, Frank Aboagye Danyansah has called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to sack the Minister of Trades and Industry, Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanteng.

He accused the Minister for sleeping on his job and failed to ensure prices of imported goods and services into the country are reduced.

His accusations come at a time traders at Suame Magazine industrial area in Kumasi were invited to the Presidency following concerns that their businesses are on the verge of collapsing under the current administration.


He said "How come it has to take the presidency to invite these traders to the Flagstaff House before their concerns are addressed."

On Friday, November 24, aggrieved spare parts dealers were invited by vice President, Dr. Muhamudu Bawumia following complaints their businesses are on the verge of collapsing.

The leadership of Ashanti Owners Business Association (AOBA) said the 3% flat VAT rate introduced by the current government is not helpful but rather killing their businesses.

But the failed MP speaking on Kumasi-based Abusua FM said the Trades Minister must be fired over business collapsing in the country.


"Where is the Minister of Trade and Industry?…is he in the country," he quizzed.

"If Alan Kyeremanteng is still the sector minister, I advise President Akufo-Addo to fire him immediately...the minister is just sleeping on his job and the President must take note and fire him," Mr. Frank Aboagye Danyansah added.
